Big (literally and figuratively) addition to the transfer portal.

Cassius Stanley declares for the draft..damn.

He’s going to go outside the top 15 I bet and his upside is going to be as big as anyone in the draft.

Ehh I'm not so sure. All these guys are one-and-doners anyway. Once the NBA allows high school seniors to go right to the draft (and they will within the next 5 years), this becomes a moot point. It affects maybe 5-10 players a year.

 

College basketball will be fine.

I think one of the worst aspects of college hoops is the high rate of turnover.  Having kids stay 3-4 years and actually form "teams" that you remember (Dixon/Blake/Baxter for example) is better.

 

I mean, Kentucky has a 90% new roster each year.  It's lame. 

 

Let the elite players earn their money -- they don't need to hone their games at the collegiate level and, frankly, they should be able to enter the draft when they graduate high school.

Baseball model for basketball. Sign out of HS or go to college for a minimum of 3 years.

As a CBB fan, I hope they do this.

But outside of that, I don’t think that’s fair to the athletes.

He had some guys leave early that hurt him some.

Never really had a chance to get real momentum.

They were a tough team this year despite a poor record.

Olivier Saar is transferring.

Major target for teams right now...if he stays in college.

Yet another chance for Turgeon to land a big.

Saar would be a legitimate replacement for Sticks.

Just saw that Wake got Steve Forbes, the East Tennessee St coach..nice hire for them.

He’s trying to convince Saar to stay.
